Art Basel Standouts

Last month was the annual Art Basel show in Miami. Here are some of the standout exhibiters as mentioned on Cool Hunting.

Kiel Johnson exhibited pieces from his "Publish or Perish" collection, including stereos, tapes, flutes, microphones and more, comprised of nothing but card and chipboard, tape and glue. Meticulously constructed, a birds-eye video shows his method for creating the pieces, all designed without the aid of a computer.

At Art Asia we saw Japanese artist Nobuhiro Nakanishi's "Fog" layer drawing, who prints photographs on transparent film to create one multi-dimensional image.

Also a standout was New York-based, Korean-born artist Ran Hwang's "Dreaming of Joy" piece, a large bird comprised of red string.
